That would be wonderful if you, or another hppa porter, could track down
where the bug lies.  libgcc2 is almost certainly the wrong package, since
nothing should be *using* libgcc2 in a fresh build of qt-x11-free; it may be
a bug in libgcc4 instead, but I think that's yet to be determined.  In the
meantime, I think it's best to reassign this back to qt-x11-free.

Debian Developer                   to set it on, and I can move the world.
